While most people lose weight after eating less or staying on a calorie deficit, John previously revealed to The Mirror that he started his weight loss journey after he added an extra meal into his day as he used to always skip breakfast in the past. He claimed that he lost more than 3 stone after he started following it. He explained,

The big secret, which somebody told me is the thing that all people who are very, very overweight have in common, is that they don’t eat breakfast…..I now eat breakfast and make the point of sitting down with my children, eating breakfast and starting the day well.

Eating a protein-rich breakfast may actually help to increase metabolism. Having a nutritious breakfast also helps control blood sugar levels, which helps you avoid slumps and the urge to reach for harmful snacks during the day. Dietitian Susie Burrell previously said,

While fasting regimes may work for some, if you are actually hungry in the mornings, or exercise early, breakfast remains the most important meal of the day…..And often it needs to be more substantial to keep your metabolism pumping until lunchtime.

Additionally, John Torode also revealed at that time he follows an exercise regime and frequently goes for cycling to keep himself fit. It appears he is still following the same method and his weight loss journey is not going to stop anytime sooner.
